    It's still not interesting--because of how nowhere in there do you mention legalizing weed--but it is well-explained, and I'm glad in a kind of contingent and volatile way that someone who is not an RNC delegate knows this stuff.

      If you wargame through the consequences of the republican establishment shutting out their grass roots, their social conservative base, from the decision making process.

      It's those soc-cons who are the most likely to pull radical actions. Those are the folks who lose their temper and go all Active Shooter in the holocaust museum or plot out a way to put a bullet in the head of abortion provider Dr Tiller. Those are the folks who would try to impose what they see as god's justice on a couple of gay men they see leaving the mall to walk across a dark parking lot.

      This can be quite interesting, in that if the republican establishment abuses their social-conservative grass roots too much then the soc-cons may well go rogue with their own motives.

      Who needs pot, when there are those crazies running around providing such excitement?
